More Democrats accuse CIA of lying

Democrats double down. Picking a fight with the CIA is a bad idea even if the head is a staunch Democrat himself. Panetta can't keep others from leaking and the CIA doesn't like being called a liar.

"Yesterday several leading Democrats joined her in criticizing the CIA's procedures for briefing Congress on intelligence issues and, rather than distancing themselves from Pelosi, top Democrats said they believe that the CIA misled her in a September 2002 briefing about controversial techniques used during interrogations of alleged al-Qaeda operatives. Some questioned the agency's new director, Leon Panetta, for defending officials for actions that occurred before his tenure, while others tried to poke holes in the accuracy of the CIA's recordkeeping."

Panetta's already on record saying Pelosi lied and he as the records to prove it.
